What is Zakat in Islam? Zakat is the third pillar of Islam. It signifies the wealth a Muslim pays to the poor and less privileged people. Zakat is a compulsory act of worship and represents the responsibility and duty the richer have towards those in need. The word Zakat means both ‘purification’ and ‘growth’.
As one of the pillars of Islam, Zakat is a form of obligatory charity that has the potential to ease the suffering of millions.Zakat is obligatory when a certain amount of money, called the Nisab, is reached or exceeded. Zakat is not mandatory if the amount owned is less than this Nisab.
